Paulsen Rural97 Project Markets to Economic Minority

Sioux Falls-based Paulsen Marketing is contributing to discussion of rural policy with a polling project it calls “Rural97“. That title refers to the fact, cited at the top of Paulsen’s webpage for its rural polling, that 97% of our nation’s land mass is rural.

But Paulsen isn’t polling or pitching to pastures; it’s trying to sell things to rural people. To that end, they would more accurately brand their project “Rural20“:

Despite the increase in the urban population, urban areas, defined as densely developed residential, commercial, and other nonresidential areas, now account for 80.0% of the U.S. population, down from 80.7% in 2010. This small decline was largely the result of changes to the criteria for defining urban areas implemented by the Census Bureau, including raising the minimum population threshold for qualification from 2,500 to 5,000. The rural population — the population in any areas outside of those classified as urban — increased as a percentage of the national population from 19.3% in 2010 to 20.0% in 2020 [U.S. Census Bureau, “Nation’s Urban and Rural Populations Shift Following 2020 Census,” 2022.12.29].

If Paulsen were looking strictly at the South Dakota market, it could call its project “Rural43”: our 57% urbanity leaves us with the seventh-highest proportion of rural residents in the nation, behind Arkansas, Montana, Mississippi, West Virginia, Maine, and Vermont. Those last four are the only states with majority rural populations.

As I noted last year when minoritarian election denier Logan Manhart claimed that small-towners are the only “true” Americans, non-metro areas generate 90% of America’s GDP. In other words, that rural 20% of the population generates only 10% of the nation’s economic activity. Rural Americans punch below their economic weight. 66.6 million rural people (I add up the total rural populations in the Census spreadsheet; Paulsen refers to “nearly 46 million people who proudly call themselves rural Americans“) can still buy a lot of beer and Prii (electric cars are one focus of Paulsen’s research, and we’ll get to that in another post), but per person, rural folks can’t buy as much beer or as many Prii as properly marketed-to city folks.

Paulsen is thus pitching to a market that certainly covers a lot of territory but offers less lucrative opportunity than the overwhelming urban majority.

    Rural residents are more costly to provide any good or service to, to urban residents. No matter what the good or service.

  2. Mike Lee Zitterich 2023-09-24 08:39

    Democrats hate Rural Americans cause they are self independent, and rely on their own resources 99.9% of the time. Democrats love Urban Centers cause they are tax ridden areas utilized to grab as much public taxes to subsidize housing, healthcare, land development, community services cause they drove up the cost of living so great, that urban residents cannot survive. So of course, the Democrats would attack the very Americans who so choose to reside in Rural America away from the huge tax centers called Urban America.

    “Rural Residents” keep their money invested in their land, their property, their farm-steads, their business ventures, etc – then 80% of their excessive profits get locked up in TRUSTS which are perpetual and locked far away from the Democrat Agenda of “high taxes”

    I am a strong supporter of South Dakota grabbing as much Federal Grants, Monetary Funds as much as possible from the Federal Revenues, then house them in our State, by creating the SOUTH DAKOTA GALAXY TRUST FUND investing the monies in stocks, bonds, and Rural Small Business Companies, allowing us to profit emensly from “federal tax payers”…At least, this will keep the money inside America, and NOT given to the corrupted Ukrainian Government.

  3. larry kurtz 2023-09-24 08:53

    Bleed the Beast, right Zitterich? I live in rural America and hosted nine other rural men for breakfast yesterday. Brian and his wife Lara fled Idaho because the Republican Party has made it unsafe for Democrats to even live in that red moocher state.

  4. larry kurtz 2023-09-24 09:03

    New Mexico has the most diverse workforce in the United Snakes and that South Dakota is becoming unsafe for Democrats is because of malevolent a$$holes like Mike Zitterich.

  5. e platypus onion 2023-09-24 09:05

    99% of rural Americans woulkdn’t survive without gubmint subsidies and other goodies from Uncle Sam. Zit knows sheit!
    Israel’s gubmint is corrupted. Ukraine, not so much.

  6. cibvet 2023-09-24 09:29

    Zman is just another bible toting,flag waving ethnocentric con man. He has given nothing
    for this country and yet he will bleed it dry while complaining about others ( Ukraine) who are
    doing and giving all to protect his sorry ass.

  7. John 2023-09-24 09:47

    The US Constitution is woefully out of date with modern US life.
    The population of Los Angeles County is greater than the population of 40 states, yet has no senators.

    About the only thing allowing rural back waters like South Dakota to have viability are their severe over representation in the US Senate.

  8. Richard Schriever 2023-09-24 09:49

    Zitterich. Independent MY ASS! First; moving to the country-side does not make the land “yours” anymore to living in a city. It ALL belongs to the state. Second; without the greatly subsidized Rural Electrification programs, greatly subsidized rural water programs and deeply disproportionate investments by GOVERNMENT in rural roads, all initiated and implemented by Democrats, rural residents would still ALL be living the Amish life. Without government price support programs (including for ethanol, beef, pork, poultry, and various grains) farmers would be eating MOST of their own product just to survive, and you would be shopping for the worst products – which they would ship to your little neighborhood grocer while keeping the best for themselves. But the bulk of today’s rural residents are simply people who don’t like pother people and are trying to distance themselves as far from their fellow human beings as possible, and NOT any sort of productive farmer at all. AND isuch rural residential life is ALL also HIGHLY subsidized by the urban economy, for roads, utilities and other services. And we haven’t even started to get into all the other infrastructure projects (TVA, Mainstream Missouri dams, dams and locks, ports and so on) that assure that “farmers” won’t be flooded out and lose all every other year or even have a market to sell to. And you can consider the GOVERNMENT NEGOTIATED trade “deals” an urban product as well. Rural residents are the most highly government dependent segment of our population. the 19th century your “vision” #independence invokes is waaaayyy back there in the rear-view mirror.

  9. Mike Lee Zitterich 2023-09-24 11:32

    Pretty sure the newly paved “Road” leading to Nordstrom’s Auto Recycling was paid for, and provided for by Private Landowner, mainly, Art Nordstrom himself who built a nice road giving the “citizens” of South Dakota a nice road to drive on to come and buy used car parts.

    Democrats continue to cry and whine about Rural America, all the private estates, homesteads, farm-steads, townships outside of large urban areas, however, those private areas are financially sound, protected by the constitution, and acting in good faith to provide for a great economy.

    You Democrats cannot ever, win, when the Landowner has the final say on all Land Development, Economic Development, Community Development, it is “Their Land” period, thanks to the Declaration of Independence (1776), Articles of Confederation (1777), Northwest Ordinance (1777, 1788, 1790), the Peace Treaty (1783), and the U.S Constitution (1789).

    America was put together by Americans who had the brains and mindset to protect themselves, their families, future generations, and their property rights, and we will most definately TAKE BACK AMERICA from your beloved Globalists, the Deep State Actors, the Bankers.

    Thank God for the 1841 Preemption Act, the 1862 Homestead Acts, and the Constitution of which Grants us Land Patents!!!

    Sorry Democrats, but you will NOT win this latest Revolutionary Period, this is about “Restoring the Republic” and the taking back full control of our Republic, and limiting the federal government outside the District of Columbia.

    We will repeal, and get rid of the following Amendments – 12, 13, 14, 16, 17

    We will repeal, and get rid of the following Departments – Education, Energy, Commerce, Health and Human Services, Homestead Security, Defense, returning back to only the three constitutional departments – Treasury, State, War.

    We will repeal and get rid of the following Agencies – CIA, FBI, DIA, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, IRS, Federal Reserve, ALL 17 Deep State Agencies of Non-Elected (and appointed) federal workers will be abolished…

    We will repeal and get rid of the following Act’s of Congress:

    1871 Act to Create a Government for the District of Columbia
    1874 the D.C Municipality Act
    1913 Federal Reserve Act
    1929 Congressional Reapportionment Act
    1933 Federal Emergency Banking Act

    Lawrence County, South Dakota is known to have been inhabited by humans for at least 12,000 years before white Republicans besmirched it then turned it into the Nazi enclave and cultural wasteland it is today. Deadwood gambling was legalized with a promise to preserve all the history in the Gulch and archaeologists still unearth Chinese opium pipes there.

    Now, with Montana in the news and China in the crosshairs of white nationalists it must be time to remind more readers that liberal democrat President Thomas Jefferson used an executive order to seize land from Indigenous people, then from west to east enslaved Chinese immigrants built the railroads in the 1800s.

  11. Mike Lee Zitterich 2023-09-24 11:42

    You will never get rid of the U.S Senate, and you will NEVER amend the Constituiton removing the RIGHT OF THE STATES to be equally protected (2 Senator) againt the MOB RULE Mentality of the U.S HOUSE where the PEOPLE themselves have 1 Member Per _____ (30,000 at mimimum)…

    Maybe, you should want the 1929 Congressional Reapportionment Act repealed, so you can redress your “Districts” and Reset them. Just think. IF we set the U.S HOUSE to be 1 Member per Every 30,000 Citizens, that would give South Dakotan’s 26 Representatives in the House, it would give Californians 1,200 Representatives in the U.S House, it would give Texans nearly 950 in the U.S House, New Yorkians would have 1,100 Representatives, FLorida would have 735 Representatives as well…There could be 10,700 Representatives in the U.S HOUSE and perhaps we could control their compensation to be $50,000 Per Congressional Annual Session, limiting them to no more than 5 months (January 3rd to May 20th) – the rest of the year, the must be HOME in their home states meeting with the people, working in their full time jobs, businesses, etc…just as any other PART TIME REPRESENTATIVE

    Oops, the DEMOCRATS probally do not want a 10,700 Member U.S HOUSE cause that also means 10,700 “ELECTORS FOR PRESIDENT” let alone, would also mean, the CONSERVATIVES (Rural Areas) would most likely gain more power over the URBAN DISTRICTS….

    WE ALL KNOW the 1929 COngressional Reapportionment ACt was passed by a DEMOCRAT led Congress to steal “Republican Voices” in the U.S HOUSE…thus gerrymandering, and hijacking the VOICE of the People.

    Larger Districts = means you create that URBAN concept, by restricting the voices outside of Los Angeles.

  12. jkl 2023-09-24 11:57

    Mike you are a very accomplished and prolific keyboardist.

  13. Richard Schriever 2023-09-24 12:02

    Zitterich, The Landowner (the state) does indeed have the final say on all Land Development. It is called the permitting process – controlled by zoning laws/ordinances.

  14. Richard Schriever 2023-09-24 12:08

    Hey Zit – who holds the patent on the land you occupy? (hint, a patent is NOT a title).

  15. Mike Lee Zitterich 2023-09-24 12:11

    The State is the caretaker of PUBLIC LANDS held by the State of People under the name of South Dakota.

    The LANDOWNERS are the ULTIMATE OWNERS OF ALL LAND , and are the superior authority of what can be developed on their land. The landowner appointed their Governor, their Land Commissioner to control and protect their interests as Landowners subdivided their land into Political Subdivisions, giving to Residents upon those sections of land “user rights” of which by law we now control the different uses – Agriculture, Residential, Commercial, and Public Places.

    ALL LANDS OUTSIDE this jurisdiction is NOT held by the State, but the private landowner claims to the land by means of Homesteads, Farm-steads, Other Land Trusts.

  16. Richard Schriever 2023-09-24 12:13

    I am one Democrat who has long been in favor of there being 10,700 Representatives in the U.S HOUSE.

  17. Richard Schriever 2023-09-24 12:21

    The state holds sovereign title to ALL lands within its bounds except those under direct control/management of the Federal Government. Who holds sovereign title (the state) is the ultimate landowner. Sovereign title is NOT transferable. As part of the process of a US Territory becoming a state, there is an agreement/REQUIREMENT that ALL land patents and titles are relinquished from private holders to the state.

  18. Richard Schriever 2023-09-24 12:22

    Zit and the like are attempting to drag the world back to the days of feudalism and serfdom. They imagine themselves as being sovereign nobility under such a scheme.

  19. Richard Schriever 2023-09-24 12:25

    Zit, there are no lands of the US outside of the jurisdiction of either a state OR a federal entity. NONE. Not one square inch. Dream on.

  20. P. Aitch 2023-09-24 12:25

    I live in the middle of three million people. It’s perfect for me. Rural living isn’t for everyone despite these benefits.
    1. Peaceful and serene environment
    2. Close community bonds
    3. Lower cost of living
    4. Connection to nature
    5. Healthier air quality
    6. Access to local, fresh produce
    7. Less traffic and congestion
    8. Lower crime rates
    9. Greater sense of privacy
    10. Opportunity for self-sufficiency

  21. larry kurtz 2023-09-24 12:28

    Despite the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1851 President Abraham Lincoln signed the Morrill Act in 1862 that distributed unceded lands in the public domain to raise funds for colleges. The Morrill Land-Grant Acts are directly linked to the Native American Genocide so after the defeat of the 7th Cavalry at Greasy Grass in 1876 and the Great Sioux War Congress abrogated that treaty in 1877 then the Utes, Lakota, Arapaho, Cheyenne and others who migrated, lived and hunted all along the Front Range were driven into concentration camps.

    The South Dakota Democratic Party should advocate for paying the tribes and settling the Black Hills Claim, dissolving the Black Hills National Forest, moving management of the land from the US Department of Agriculture into the Department of Interior in cooperation with Bureau of Indian Affairs Division of Forestry and Wildfire Management. Mato Paha (Bear Butte), the associated national grasslands and the Sioux Ranger District of the Custer/Gallatin National Forest should be included in the move.

    Zitnitwit is an effing liar.Magats have control of both house of Congress and both added seats with Hoover the loser in the WH.

    Both the House and Senate remained under Republican control, with increased majorities in each chamber. And with Herbert Hoover being sworn in as president on March 4, 1929, the Republicans maintained an overall federal government trifecta.

    Tarring and feathering is too good for mealy mouthed liars. String them up by their thumbs and let them go hang.

  23. e platypus onion 2023-09-24 13:10

    Magats are the ones gerrymandering large amounts of Dems in urban spaces, not to increase their power, but, to decrease the number of Dem controlled seats in failed red states.

  24. Mike Zitterich 2023-09-24 15:35


    All land that we as a country took by treaty was placed in a public trust I’m the name of the people. The land was to remain in the trust u til an American came foward showing rightful claim to the Land ,while then gaining the land warrant (patent). The government owns no land, and States are merely Geoups of People who established themselves as a political subdivisions.

    Much of S.D was created as Homesteaders CAME TO Dakota Territory. Claiming their lands.

    The only lands owned by the STATE are those lands ceded by landowners of which are used to hold the Govt Adminsttative District – Capitol building, Gov Mansion, Admin Buildings, Court Buildings, State Parks, State Highways, etc

    There are still lands in S.D still held in our federal trust open to be claimed, there are the Native American Reservations, and then there is land held by the Federal Govt for uses of operating the Federal Govt – National Parks, Court, Post Office, Admin Buildings, Highways.

    All lands NOT in those jurisdictions are Private, held within the counties, known as cities. Townships, homesteads, farm-steads, land districts, etc. Alot of these lands are NOT taxed.

    Only people who pay property taxes are those who own or do business on the land I. Those political subdivisions where landowners agrees to subdivide their land, creating townships. The landowners 320 acres was subdivided into 1 acre Plata, then zoned for agriculture use, commercial use, or residential use.

    *the actual landowner listed on PATENT does NOT actually pay property tax, he’s exempted thanks to Article 22, Section 2 of State Constitution.

    Now, however the FEDS may have reserved the right to assess a imposition fee on profits of where those landowners sold natural resources, minerals, or partakes in any activity on waterways (rivers, streams, lakes) as part of the land warrant covenants.

    I am Glas you agree on the Apportionment of the U.S HOUSE, we the people should have 1 Representative Per 30,000 Citizens (not people).

    If S.D had 26 reps, then Democrats would have at least 10 voices in congress for sure. But remember, if California has 1.200, Republicans Most likely have a huge majority in Californja.

    East River is already destroyed but West River can still be saved.

    So, the question remains: should rewilding efforts seek to restore sustainable wild lands to Pleistocene Era conditions or let the Anthropocene lay waste desertifying precious resources changing the landscape forever leaving survivors to cleave out habitable zones forsaking native species?

  26. grudznick 2023-09-24 16:55

    Rewild the West, Lar. But we start in Sioux Falls and Omaha with the bulldozers.

  27. larry kurtz 2023-09-24 17:19

    Today, land repatriation is the part of the roadmap to reconciliation and that Republican welfare ranchers are angry about rewilding means it’s the right thing to do.

    Rewild it and rename it Paha Sapa National Monument eventually becoming part of the Greater Missouri Basin National Wildlife Refuge connecting the CM Russell Wildlife Refuge in Montana along the Missouri River to Oacoma, South Dakota combined with corridors from Yellowstone National Park to the Yukon in the north and south to the Pecos River through Nebraska, eastern Colorado, western Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas.

  28. larry kurtz 2023-09-24 17:23

    There is some discussion in my home state of South Dakota about whether the earth hater party’s political bludgeon could be cut down to size if there were some mechanism in place to redraw districts to make voting more equitable for Democrats.

    This is at least as much about the flight of young people and Democrats from South Dakota than anything else. Inbound white retirees from somewhere else tapping into the state’s culture of federal dependence have simply displaced progressive thought leaders so there is little mystery about that.

    How are 66 county seats and their bureaucracies either conservative or sustainable? They’re not; but, it is the way Republican cronyism and patronage built barricades to democracy by providing benefits of the public dole to those who say they deplore big gubmint in a state that hates poor people.

    Voter turnout is dismal in Indian Country mostly because tribal nations endure hopelessness as they compete with the stingy red moocher state government for resources.

    The Wanblee district should be in Oglala Lakota County then Jackson should be rolled into Haakon, Jones and Lyman Counties. Stanley and Sully should be rolled into Hughes. Give Indian Country some clout by making Oglala Lakota, Mellette, Bennett, Todd, Gregory and Tripp one county. Dewey, Ziebach and Corson should be a county. Butte, Harding and Perkins should be one. Lawrence and Meade should be one, Fall River and Custer should be one.

    Fine. Stanley might be happier being in with Lyman and the others. Combine Marshall and Brown Counties, too. East River is a dead zone: smarter people than i can figure out how to sort out that mess. Everything east of the Missouri River is Cleveland anyway.

  29. grudznick 2023-09-24 17:31

    Most of the counties were created long before S.D became a state…under Dakota Territory 1862 to 1890 under the temporary government. It will be hard to break them up.

    P Aitch, as has been the case for about 5 years now, rural crime rates are HIGHER to Urban crime rates.

    Cost of living and COMMUTING to a job or driving to access groceries and services across miles of empty land of a rural “community” is HIGHER than living a short distance from same.

    Air is equally dirty everywhere. as is NOISE and ODOR pollution. One of the major complaints people who move to the country for the peace and quiet and clean air is the noisy, dirty, smelly farmers.

    Only way you’re gonna get better access to fresh food is if you grow your own, as today’s factory farms are monocultural.

  34. grudznick 2023-09-24 19:59

    It’s best to live in the woods and have people bring you stuff you need, Mr. Schriever.

  35. Richard Schriever 2023-09-24 20:07

    Zit, again, there is not pone square inch of US territory that is “privately held”. Not one. There are some lands that are not taxed, those held by the states and the Federal Government directly, with no fee simple titles issued and the tribal lands held in trust as well as land TITLED to religious institutions, educational institutions and some non-profits. Thos non-governmental lands are TEMPORAILY granted tax exemption, but NOT sovereign title. PROOF on an application for exemption of the nature of the applicant is required by the landlord – the holder of the sovereign title, the state. Again, I will ask you – WHO holds the “patent” on any real property you occupy. EVER? Good luck finding even one name. There are none. You are off chasing a wild goose that I am quite familiar with, having been sucked down that rabbit hole way back in the 1970’s. A hole is exactly what the impression is it will make in your brain.

  36. Richard Schriever 2023-09-24 20:12

    Typical grudz – putting the burden of one’s socially isolated life on others. Way to go there, advocating for a life of societal dependency, while simultaneously deluding oneself into believing in one’s total independence. Great depiction of how the rural populace is utterly dependent on the beneficence of the urban populace for survival.

  37. P. Aitch 2023-09-24 20:14

    The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), the statistical arm of the Department of Justice, recently released findings from the 2021 National Crime Victimization Survey. According to the NCVS, which dates to the Nixon administration, the rate of violent crime rose only in urban areas. It did not change to a statistically significant degree in suburban or rural areas.
    From 2018 through 2020, the NCVS found that the violent-crime rate in urban areas was between 29 percent and 42 percent higher than the rate in rural areas. In 2021, however, the violent-crime rate in urban areas was 121 percent higher, more than doubling the rate in rural areas (24.5 victimizations in urban areas, versus 11.1 in rural areas, per 1,000 persons). In addition, the violent-crime rate in urban areas was 48 percent higher in 2021 than in suburban areas, more than tripling any difference in urban and suburban rates registered from 2018 to 2020. The property-crime rate in urban areas was nearly twice as high in 2021 as in suburban areas (157.5 to 86.8 victimizations per 1,000 households) and nearly three times as high as in rural areas (157.5 to 57.7 victimizations per 1,000 households).

  38. grudznick 2023-09-24 20:18

    Indeed, Mr. Schriever. We all must do our share of paying fellows with jobs to bring us stuff. Just like the city-folk have to pay for food.

    The Lyon-Axtell Family hold a PATENT on the property known today as the Sioux Empire Fairgrounds, and have held it since the family purchased the homestead way back in 1890. ALL 160 acres of land, and they do NOT pay any property tax on the land, not one dime. It is also why KNIFE RIVER will never gain access, nor purchase the land….EVER.

    The Tuttle Family holds the PATENT to the Tut-Hill Park land, of which is also an homestead purchased in 1896, 160 acres.

    THe Phillips Family holds the PATENT to the property today known as McKennan Partk, purchased in 1887, to which they settled and claimed 160 acres of land,…The FAMILY is listed on the patent as sole owner, and do NOT pay property tax on the land…

    SENEY ISLAND or the land beneath Sioux Steel is part of 320 acres of land of which the Western Town Compant claimed in 1856 under the Preemption Act of 1841, the company held onto the patent, of which this became the VILLAGE OF SIOUX FALLS (townsite claim). W.W Brookings purchased the ISLAND from this companyt in 1877 owning 37 Acres of land, of which was then sold over to another person. Last I known, the Milwaukee Rail Road purchased the patent in 1908, to which they subdivided the property into 3 residential zones, to which the Company kept #1, Pitt Steel got #2 and Sioux Steel got #3. Since then, the Milwaukee Rail Road since conveyed their land to the other two, , while Pitt Steel conveyed their land to Sioux Steel, meaning Sioux Steel ended up with all 37 Acres today, of which has been since conveyed to Lloyd Companies, to which now holds the PATENT RIGHTS…this is the most known piece of property that I know of, that the owners has never paid Property Tax, cause even the State proclaims they have had no RIGHT to collect property tax to the land…
